Persons filing vendor claims must not accept payment in addition to the Department's rate, except for a contribution, from a person not legally responsible for the deceased, that is applied to:

  • the cost of the casket, urn or vault; or
  • the cost of additional funeral home expenses, up to $2000, for services or merchandise that are not required to be provided for the Department's payment; or
  • the cost of additional cemetery expenses, up to $2000, for services or merchandise that are not required to be provided for the Department's payment.

When payment is received in addition to the Department's rate, the vendor claim must include a statement that shows:

  • the charge for the casket, vault, or additional services provided; and
  • the amount of payment or contribution received.

Funeral homes and cemetery associations must file separate claims. Each must also provide a statement if payments have been accepted for services or merchandise not required to be provided for the Department's payment.
